|Today really didn't go according to plan. I slept well, got up at a reasonable hour, and things seemed to be moving right along.
And then my blood sugar crashed while I was playing Dead Space 2. So I had a snack (essentially a second breakfast), cooled down for a moment, and things seemed normal.
An hour later, and it was time for breakfast. I was mid-way through pouring my meds when my blood sugar crashed again. This time I was shaking like crazy, so it must've dropped lower than it had earlier. Time for a third breakfast.
An hour later, I was having trouble thinking and was having more trouble. This time I checked my sugar via the glucometer, and it was actually abnormally high rather than low. Fun.
An hour after that, and I checked again. In the time since the previous check, my blood sugar had plummeted by about 30 points. So much for the original plan of heading to the Hall today -- things were too unsafe for that.
I had yet another snack and waited it out until lunchtime. By then, I had little to no equilibrium and was spending most of my effort just remaining upright.
Things eventually balanced out after a larger meal, but I still spent the day uncoordinated and in a fog.
Fun fun day.
On the plus side, I did manage to make an upgrade to one of my tools and nearly completed the side project I mentioned yesterday. Even though we're thinking of going for a hike tomorrow, I should still be able to finish it during the day. There's not much left, but enough is enough for now.
Link of the day: 2 minutes of happiness
I've been following this animator on Tumblr for a long time; I didn't know they had a YouTube account until just now. Enjoy the silly little animations!
